Terminator 3 Party - Cannes Film Festival

 

“I’ll be back,” he promised film fans across the globe in Terminator 2 and Arnold Schwarzenegger kept his word. Sat Bal joined Arnold and co-stars in Cannes at host Pierre Cardin’s futuristic villa.

The party reportedly cost £2 million and was organised MTV Networks Europe and Columbia TriStar pictures. MTV knows a thing or two about staging glitzy events as we’ve seen from its flagship MTV Awards and fashion designer Pierre Cardin’s Palais Bulles (Bubble Palace) was an inspired choice. We’ve never seen a home/venue like it – warrens of spacey rooms and swimming pools with waterfalls reminiscent of the sci-fi setting of the film Barbarella.

A-Listers at the party included Jerry Hall and Samuel L Jackson (who kindly lent us his car!). So tight was the security that even our media posse had to be escorted in by security to avoid people being mugged for their laminates and passes. Adrien Brody, star of The Pianist found that even stardom didn’t hold much sway with the burly security teams, though he made it into the party. Narrowly.

 

“It’s great to be here at this party,” Schwarzenegger told us at the event. “Since Terminator 2 this industry has grown so much. Just look around you. More camera crews and press than ever before and the public is here in such great numbers. And the film hasn’t even been released yet!”

Indeed, much has moved on in the 12 years since T2 crashed onto the big screen and T3 has resolved to capture the zeitgeist too. “There have been huge advances in visual effects which have become so sophisticated now,” continued the actor, who was reportedly paid $30 million for his T3 role. “The big difference between the two films is that we have used digital effects to create a very different type of film this time around.”

 

Revellers at the Bubble Palace

MTV Networks Europe pan-European events director Macky Drese told us: "Columbia Tristar briefed us on T3's content and commissioned a party themed around the film. We then employed various lighting and projection techniques to create an urban landscape to reflect the film. We also used animatronics plus a couple of Arnies in various states of destruction, all created by Oscar winner Stan Winston."

MTV enlisted Adrian Smith from The Design Stage as creative director for the event. He collaborated with UK events agency GSP.

Party guests schmoozed their way through 4,000 bottles of Mumm champagne and as many bottles of spirits, oblivious to the rigours of making T3. “It was very tiring to make this movie,” said Schwarzenegger. “Stunt scenes had to be done over and over again. I hurt my back and hip and had to have surgery on my shoulder. But I’m in great shape now and am looking forward to many more good years in movies.”

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines is released worldwide July 2003

The Weekend In Cannes

Seems like just yesterday that we flew to Cannes for the hot-ticket premiere of Arnold Schwarzenegger's then blockbuster, Terminator 3. This time around in Cannes he's an all-at-sea conservationist.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jean-Michel Cousteau attended Nikki Beach for the Wonders of the Sea 3D press conference on Saturday. From Fiji to the Bahamas, Jean-Michel Cousteau, his team and his children Celine and Fabien embark on a voyage to discover the ocean as never seen before and learn more about the threats that put our ocean at risk.

Directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau and narrated by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wonders of the Sea 3D is billed as a once-in-a-lifetime experience and tribute to the ocean, expected to attract and unite the general public around the need to protect the ocean.

Elsewhere, Mary J. Blige was out for the premiere of The Meyerowitz Stories, the comedy starring Ben Stiller. Mary J. Blige wore a stunning Sautoir necklace and earrings from jeweller Avakian, with kite-shaped and pink diamonds matching her colour diamond cuff bracelet.

 

 

Avakian was also the choice of model Sara Sampaio (below) who wore a striking pair of earrings from the Gatsby Collection set with white enamel, pink tourmalines and diamond.

 

 

She matched it with a bangle from the Victory Collection set in white mother of pearl and diamonds for her arrival at the premiere of 120 Battements Par Minute.
